208. Do the spirits of the parents have any influence over the spirit of their child after birth?
“They have a very large influence on it. As we have already told you, spirits are made to contribute to one another’s progress. The spirits of the parents are entrusted with the mission of developing those of their children by the training they give them. It is a task that is appointed to them, and which they cannot fail to fulfill without feeling a sense of guilt.”
